In 2011 a heist in New Zealand became the centre of attention for the worlds media. In fact it wasn't known for a long time that it was a heist as the perpetrators had disguised it as a film set...
This is their story.
After becoming obsessed with heist movies, a team of bored, unemployed, amateur film makers become convinced that they could make their own heist movie, but in real life!
All they would need is to stage a heist that looked like a movie set, film it where people thought it was fake, but instead they actually carry out the heist.
This is the documented, behind the scenes footage that they recorded.
From the initial idea, to the scripting and pre-production phase, right through to the final shoot, this is a film for all heist movie enthusiasts as they get to see how they did or didn't pull it off.
